Cultural Solidarity Fund 

Providing Emergency Relief Microgrants for Individual Artists and Cultural Workers

In the spirit of coalition and resource sharing, NYC arts and cultural organizations of all sizes and structures continue to come together to grow a joint Cultural Solidarity Fund that provides $500 relief microgrants to NYC artists and cultural workers. Your participation and sponsorship will have a great impact

To date, more than 200 organizations and individuals have come together to raise $125,000. We received an overwhelming 2,722 applications with 56% of applicants expressing dire need for food and housing funds, far outpacing the current funds available. We were able to to fund 9% of applicants and our new goal is to raise $300,00o, in order to fund all priority applicants. Your support is needed.


Applications to receive a micro-grant closed on March 5th, 2021 at 9 PM.

We will not be re-opening applications at this time, and we are focusing our efforts on funding as many applicants we have received as possible.

Organizations and individuals can still sponsor a microgrant today and at any time for the first half of 2021.
